N is for Nativity Scene

The Nativity Scene is a key element of Christmas, so it might seem a little strange to mention one given that we are coming up on that highest of Christian holy days, the Feast of the Resurrection of Christ, aka Easter.  Still, what is an Easter basket without chocolate?  Chocolate is definitely Heaven-sent, so in that spirit I present a chocolate Nativity Scene from Russia.

 

Another variation comes from Catholic Cuisine: December 2010:

 

If you prefer to keep things simple, there is this lovely portrayal of the Holy Family:

Do you have any special memories of the Nativity Scenes you saw under the Christmas trees when you were little?  Did you make any by hand, perhaps in Sunday school?  There are many Nativity Scenes created to reflect the people of a particular ethnic or cultural community.  How could we design a Nativity Scene that would embody the true spirit of inclusivity in the Angels’ message of “Peace on Earth, Goodwill toward Men”?

  1. Those are cute. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a nativity scene in chocolate.

    • They are pretty. I have to admit, I’d feel uncomfortable actually eating the chocolate. Well, OK, I might eat the farm animals and the Three Wise Men, but not the Angel or the Holy Family.
